Riverside!
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Glad you liked SLS, it's obviously a great album.

Rapid Eye Movement is another great album, that doesn't seem to get the love it deserves.
Highly suggest it if you haven't heard any of their other albums.

Evergrey is like a progressive and more heavy In Flames (that was what i heard when i first listend to In Flames that i should check Evergrey out couse they reminds of In Fames just more heavy and progressive)

Well I love Evergrey, but Riverside will destroy this poll. Props to Evergrey though, no-one sounds like them :)

Riverside, I detest Evergrey and after listening to one of their early albums, I wonder why they are considered prog?

Well I think they are... The music might not be the most complex, but the plethora of concept albums, variety, musicianship and unusual songwriting does it for me.

I went with Riverside in a landslide... I was introduced to both bands via ProgPower USA concerts and Riverside put on a much better show and I enjoy their music a lot more, too.

Not a 100% fair battle of course. Riverside is one of the top prog bands whilst Evergrey is (though very good) no where near that league.
I'm a big Riverside fan so can only pick them but I owe 6 Evergrey albums as well. Great band but their compositions are simply no match for Riverside standard.
A day without prog is a wasted day

Riverside is one of the best prog metal bands, Evergrey is neither as good nor prog imo.

A little notice: if Riverside is "underrated" band, then I'm a Chinese God of Fun.

Evergrey is more of a metal band with some prog influences, while Riverside is definitely a prog metal band. Aside from In Search of Truth and to a lesser extent Recreation Day, Evergrey doesn't have anything to really compete with Riverside.
